Ithaca's Puzzlemaster Adam Perl will once again create three original crosswords for the event. Individuals, or teams of up to four, are invited to compete for prizes in one of three levels of difficulty. This year’s event will include a silent auction, other games, raffles, drawings, and more.

"To have a local puzzle constructor, three levels of difficulty and teams, is unique. Good luck to everyone at the 7th Annual Finger Lakes Crossword Competition!" -Will Shortz, NYTimes
